Lawfirm Attacking Breitbart's Widow Also Attacking NC Voter ID... for Free
PJ Media Rule of Law: Vampires, Shirley Sherrod Lawyers Seek to Sue Widow of Andrew Breitbart.
It turns out that the clients of Kirkland and Ellis are also indirectly supporting the attack on North Carolina's new Voter Identification law. From the Winston Salem Journal:
Additionally within one hour of the voter suppression bill being signed earlier this year, the NC NAACP filed a suit. The Advancement Project, the Kirkland and Ellis law firm acting pro bono, Adam Stein of Chapel Hill, the former partner of the late Julius Chambers, Atty. Irv Joyner, and assisted by Atty Jamie Phillips and Atty. Al McSurley represent the NC NAACP in its suit.
How can a law firm afford to donate attorney time to an attack on election integrity laws like North Carolina voter ID?
Simple: Keep the rates of paying clients high enough so that the paying clients end up subsidizing the salaries of the attorneys working for free for the North Carolina NAACP's attack on voter ID. Here is the complaint naming the Kirkland and Ellis lawyers attacking North Carolina voter ID.
What do we discover in the complaint? Thomas Yannucci, the same lawyer representing Shirley Sherrod in her efforts to sue Breitbart's widow, is the same lawyer attacking North Carolina voter ID.
The pages for the other Kirkland and Ellis lawyers are here: Daniel Donovan, Susan Davies, Winn Allen, Uzoma Nkwonta, Kim Knudson, Anne Dechter and the lawyer who multitasks between attacking Breitbart and North Carolina, Thomas Yannucci.
We learn from these firm pages that the paying clients of the lawyers working pro bono include: Wyndham, Honeywell, AOL, Bayer, BP, Coca-Cola, Raytheon, Chiquita, HBO, Hershey Foods, Verizon and General Motors.
So next time you buy that Coke or Buick, remember where you money might be going.
